The Final Day of the Minnesota Designer’s Blog Hop

I decided to take today off from work to do some projects outside, in time for company on the 4th.  I just came in the house at 4:30 and realized that I completely forgot to post about the final day of the blog hop.  I’ll show you next week what I was so busy doing, but in the meantime I want to tell you about today’s featured designer.  Mary from Quilted Treasures in Rogers, MN is doing a demo on grommets.  Grommets are all the rage right now, so for those of you who haven’t already tried them, here is your chance!  Mary owns one of my favorite quilt shops in the state of MN, so you may even want to stop by her shop and see her grommet pillow in person. 

This wraps up our final day of the blog hop.  Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success.  I hope you learned a lot and got inspired – I know I did!  I’m just curious – are you all interested in participating in an event like this again next year?  We’d like to know if we should do it again.


PS – Happy 4th of July (in advance)

    Yes, Yes, Yes–it was fun to read the tutorials, learn something new and add to my purchase list. This was great–and the applique project is on the pile to do!

  4. Jane says:

    I love the blog – only problem was that I could not leave a comment on Day 9. I kept getting rejected and after several attempts I gave up, so I guess I will be out of the final drawing!

  5. Oh yes, do it again! In another year, all of you Minnesota artists will have lots of new things to show off. I’m proud to live in Minnesota!

    This blog hop was a great idea! I am just happy I fell across it! Yes, for sure I would do it again-I am definitely hooked on all of your sites. So much fun and you are all such great inspirations! We are so lucky to have you so close by! I want to especially thank you again for the binding tip way back when I was struggling with joining the ends-YOU came to my rescue! I think of you every time I bind a quilt!!! Have a great 4th!

  16. wendysquilting says:

    Hey! How’s it going? I got your email, sorry I am such a crappy responder, it’s been a crazy week! Anyway, check my blog because Carrie and I have something crazy going on, and your participation is required! 😉 Mainly because I REALLY want to see what you post. Purely selfish reasons.

  49. Susan Ellis says:

    Yes, please, if possible, I would really enjoy participating in the blog hop again….I realize that it is a huge amount of work, but now I have “go to” places on the web that are quilter friendly…I had no idea, before since we on the west coast have quilt shop hops that you have to drive to…very expensive and not very easy to do. Thank you to all of you who worked to hard to make this happen! PS would it be possible for some of the computer gurus out there to fix any “hiccups” pertaining to the comment boxes–it was frusterating for me a couple of times and there was no way to find out if it actually sent my comment. Thanks again!

  50. Elaine says:

    YES, that would be fun to do this again next year. I now have new blogs to visit! Thanks to all of you for this.

  51. Linda Groth Olsen says:

    Yes-Yes-Yes—Please do the Blog Hop again—I looked forward to it each day and enjoyed learning new techniques…..I appreciate all the work all the designers put into the Hop—It was a huge success……………Thanks so much………..
